SIXTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD* OF MISSIONS 
AND SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

Many have been the blessings God has given to the Mission and Sun- 
day School work during the past year. The labors of the missionaries 
have been abundant, and the work done has been blessed in its imme- 
diate results, and for the years which are to come the blessings from 
these labors will flow to the people of the State in rich abundance from 
churches established, and the light shining out from these to the com- 
munities around them in consecrated Christian lives, in better citizens 
and happier homes. The food crops for the year have been abundant, 
and the cotton and other money crops, while not so abundant, have 
brought and are bringing fairly good prices. Our people are in better 
condition than for several years past. Let us be grateful for the abund- 
ant mercies of God to us, and with our gratitude let us ask Him to give 
us the grace of liberality in good works for His glory and the betterment 
of humanity by the preaching of the gospel in every community and 
neighborhood in our own State, and in the regions beyond in our own 
land, and to the benighted in foreign lands. May the spirit of work 
and liberality come upon us with resistless force, and send us out to do 
the Lord's work committed to our hands and hearts. 

THE DEAD. 

The following brethren have been called to their reward, by death, 
since the last meeting of the Convention:

capacity of Secretary of this Board. 

"3. That we extend heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family, and 
commend them to the mercy of our Father in heaven.

THE VOLUNTARY SYSTEM. 

After the Convention at Charlotte, the matter of "Voluntary Mission 
Work by Pastors and Brethren," was discussed and urged in the Biblical 
Recorder, by Rev. N. S. Jones, of Salisbury. He called it " The Re- 
gions Beyond " work, and asked for volunteers for this work. Quite a 
number of pastors and brethren responded to this proposition, and a con- 
iderable work was done, but so few reports of the work were sent to the 
Mission Board that there is a want of definite information about it. The 
work needs the fostering care of the Convention. If it can be placed 
in the care of a committee, carefully selected, many destitute fields, 
which we are unable to reach by regularly appointed missionaries, can 
be reached in this way with the preaching of the Gospel, and future re- 
sults, in souls saved and churches organized, will be large and the king- 
dom of Christ will be greatly extended.

l8 MINUTES OF THE 

FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

God wants the World. He loved the world so as to give His Son. He 
has commissioned His people to tell the "glad news " to every creature. 
He is with those who are engaged in the work, whether we work in the 
home or foreign lands ; we can all be foreign missionaries in spirit and 
in our lives. When we, who stay at home, pray and give, we are tak- 
ing part with those who have gone. 

The Southern Baptist Convention was organized in Augusta, Ga., in 
1845. At that meeting the Foreign Mission Board was appointed. Dur- 
ing the fifty years of its existence, 310 missionaries have been sent out 
and $1,814,800 given to the work. Missions are now sustained in China, 
Africa, Italy, Brazil, Mexico and Japan. The report to the Convention 
which met in Washington, May ioth-i4th, 1895, showed the following 
statistics : 

China Missions. — Canton (begun in 1845), 13 missionaries, 22 native 
helpers, 8 churches, 866 members, 82 baptisms, 14 schools, $1, 683. 65 con- 
tributions. Shanghai Mission (1847), 9 missionaries, 2 native helpers, 3 
churches, no members, 2 baptisms, 2 schools, $74 contributions. Chin- 
kiang Missions (1880), 7 missionaries, 2 churches, 17 members, 1 school, 
$206.16 contributions. North China Mission (i860) 12 missionaries, 3 
churches, 138 members, 34 baptisms, 3 schools, $53.54 contributions. 
Total for China, 41 missionaries, 25 native helpers, 16 churches, 1,131 
members, 118 baptisms. 

African Missions. — Lagos and interior (1850), 7 missionaries, 6 native 
helpers, 4 churches, 239 members, 67 baptisms, $214.45 contributions.

THE BOARD. 

The Foreign Board is appointed annually by the Southern Baptist 
Convention. As the Convention is composed of representatives, the 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 



*9 



Board is the servant of the churches. It is composed of men who be- 
long to some of these churches These brethren are selected with a 
view to their piety, integrity, capacity and interest in the mission work. 
No better set of men conld be fonnd anywhere than those composing 
the Board. 

To these brethren is entrusted the duty of directing our foreign mis- 
sion work. This includes : (i) Establishing mission stations ; (2) Select- 
ing and sending out the missionaries ; (3) Settling questions which arise 
on the field as to the conduct of the work ; (4) Providing for the sup- 
port of the missionaries. 

In all of these points great wisdom is needed, and the Board often 
feels it necessary to refer questions for decision back to the brethren in 
convention who appointed them. 

FAITH AND PRAYER. 

We need more than ever to realize that this is God's work. He is the 
author of it. He gave it to us. Working with Him and for Him, we 
cannot fail. Great difficulties are before us, but the greater the conflicts 
the greater will be the conquests. Let us remembar our Commander 
and Leader, His power and presence. Let us talk to God more about 
the work. More earnest prayer is needed for missions. A missionary 
labors for the coming of Christ's Kingdom. God loved this work and 
gave His Son for it. Let us pray to God more for this great work. 

PASTORS. 

The pastors must be thoroughly missionary to influence the churches 
for missions. They are God-appointed leaders. If they are indifferent 
or afraid, comparatively little will be done. If strong and earnest, 
much can be accomplished. To work up his church in missions, the 
pastor needs three things : (1) Convictions of God's truth ; (2) Courage 
to speak the truth ; (3) Consecration to lovingly, earnestly, patiently 
press the truth until he " brings things to pass." 

APPORTIONMENT. 

The following is taken from the "Report on Financial Policy of the 
Board," which was adopted at the last Convention : 

" That through the cooperation of Vice-Presidents, the Board seeks 
to appoint, in each district association in our territory, a suitable repre- 
sentative, from whom facts may be gathered and to whom information 
about our Board may be distributed. 

That the different States, tributary to this body, be requested to raise 
for our work the sums affixed, as follows : 

Alabama $ 1q>8qo 

Arkansas 2>400 

West Arkansas and Indian Territory 600 



20 MINUTES OF THE 

District of Columbia 1,200 

Florida 1,800 

Georgia 18.000 

Kentucky 18,000 

Louisiana 2,400 

Maryland 13,200 

Mississippi — 6,000 

Missouri 9,000 

North Carolina 9,000 

South Carolina 13,800 

Tennessee 7,200 

Texas 15, 000 

Virginia 21,000 

Other States 600 

Total $150,000 

We recommend that North Carolina endorse the apportionment as 
given and subdivide it respectively among the Associations, and that 
the Associations, likewise, subdivide among the churches. 

women's work. 

The Women's Missionary Union has pressed forward with the work 
during the past year with gratifying results. Their report shows nearly 
$25,000 raised for Foreign Missions. The sisters can get information 
for organizing socities, etc., from the Corresponding Secretary, Miss 
Annie W. Armstrong, Baltimore, Md., who is ever ready to help. 

OUTLOOK. 

God is blessing our work very graciously. Many baptisms are re- 
ported from the different fields. We will soon send out several Mission- 
aries. Most of these are those who have been at home to rest and re- 
cuperate. 

FINANCES. 

The contributions for the past year were over $130,000. While still 
hampered with nearly $20,000 debt, yet this is considerably less than 
last year, $9,200 of it being on the Chapel Fund. We have no interest 
to pay on this last amount. 

Of all the funds received at the office in Richmond, 92 cents on the 
dollar went to the missionaries. Only 8 cents on the dollar was used 
for all expenses here. 

In this calculation we have not included the expenses in the differ- 
ent States for collecting. These vary, as some States charge more than 
others. Some charge nothing at all. 

The Board needs money now, not only to pay off past due obligations, 
but to meet the regular expenses each month. Through the summer 
comparatively little has come in ; not half enough to meet expenses. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 21 

INFORMATION. 

More information is needed by pastors and people. Let pastors read 
and weave into their sermons missionary facts. Tell what God is doing 
now. His word and His works go together. Get the people to read 
Tke Mission Journal, published by the Boards. It can be gotten for 50 
cents a year. Have some live brother or sister to get up subscribers. 
Try to get one or more Journals in each church in your Association. 

Sample copies of The Mission Journal or tracts can be gotten free at 
any time. 

If any brother wishes further information with reference to our For- 
eign Mission work, please feel perfectly free to ask any questions of the 
Corresponding Secretary, R. J. Willingham, or Associate Secretary, E. 
Y. Mullins, Richmond, Va. 

APPOINTMENT OF ASSOCIATIONAI, REPRESENTATIVES FOR NORTH 

CAROLINA. 

Promptly after last session of the Southern Baptist Convention, the 
amount asked of our State for Foreign Missions for this year was appor- 
tioned among the Associations, and Representatives were appointed in 
each Association in the State to see that these amounts were raised, and 
to stimulate the churches in the work. Cheering news comes from many 
of the Associations that pledges were taken to the full amount, and 
some times more than the apportionment. 

Missionary Motives- 

The 1,000,000,000 heathen in need of salvation should stir us to activ- 
ity. 

Philanthropy should urge us to the rescue. 

But the highest motive is in the Lord's command — Obedience ; and 
in Paul's words : " The love of Christ constraineth us." 

Encouragement. 

If our faith needs strengthening, let us contemplate Carey and India, 
Judson and Burmah, Clough and the Lone Star Mission, Yates and 
China, together with our consecrated leaders now on the field, and gather 
courage to go forward. 

Our Needs. 

The call comes for men. We can't send them without money. The de- 
mauds of the work are large, and increasing. Can they be met? The 
Spirit of God in our churches will speedily solve the question. Have 
we been trying to do mission work without the spirit of missions ? The 
Holy Spirit in a church made it a missionary force — it will do so now.

The total work of the Home Mission Board, for fifty years of its his- 
tory, has been: 

Missionaries (annual appointment) 5,639 

Churches constituted 2,354 

Houses of worship built T , I 54 

Additions to mission churches 123,191 

It will seem, from these figures, that the Board has averaged 115 mis- 
sionaries annually from its origin. Its missionaries have constituted an 
average of fifty churches every year, have added nearly 2,500 annually 
to their membership, and built one house of worship every two weeks 
on our mission fields. 

Taking the last thirteen years of its history, since it has felt the touch 
of returning prosperity, and its progress has been greatly increased. 

In these years its annual average of work has been: 

Missionaries, total 3,460 

Annual average 266 

Churches constituted, total 709 

Annual average 55 

Houses of worship built, total 709 

Annual average 54 

Additions to churches, total 91,201 

Annual average 7,000 

When it is remembered that the entire denomination South numbered 
only 250,000 whites at its origin, and the disastrous years of cruel strife 
left our country impoverished, and all its industries prostrated, we are 
amazed and gratified at these results. 

In the historical discourse on the fiftieth anniversary of the Southern 
Baptist Convention, delivered at Washington by Rev. W. H. Whitsett 
D. D., LL. D., he said : 

"The Home Mission Board, which had so long been in an enfeebled 
condition, began to receive new favor after 1879. I n the year 1882 it was 
reconstructed at Greenville, S. C, and started upon a career of prosper- 
ity that has been the joy and the marvel of our recent history. Experi- 
ence has amply demonstrated that this agency is necessary to the pros- 
perity and efficiency of the Convention. Therefore we may well rejoice 
in every influence that contributes to strengthen the hands and to im- 
prove the resources of the Home Mission Board."

BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 27 

Work of the Home Mission Board for the Conventional Year 

Ending April 30TH, 1895. —Jubilee Year. 

General Statement. 

Number of missionaries this year, four hundred and twenty-five, an 
increase of forty-four over last year, and more than in any year of the 
Board's history. 

Baptized, five thousand nine hundred and twenty-one, an increase of 
one thousand four hundred and fifty-one over last year, and five hun- 
dred and seventy-two more than have been baptized in any year since 
the organization of the convention. 

Cash receipts $88,640.20, being $15,319.29 larger than last year, and 
greater than any previous year except the Centennial. 

The Board began the year with a debt of $6,763.54; has paid on house 
of worship in New Orleans $9,476.50, and for church buildings at other 
points $2,386.62, a total of $11,862.12. 

After paying missionaries, April 1st, its indebtedness was $23,000, 
which, May 1st, had been reduced to $1,100.00, with a balance of $109.06 
in the treasury. 

Increase of missionaries has been nearly 12 per cent.; of receipts, 20 
per cent., and of baptisms, 32 per cent. 

PRESENT WORK OF THE BOARD. 

Nearly half the missionaries of the Board are working on the frontier 
of Texas, in the Indiau Territory and in Oklahoma. 

Its work among the Germans is in Baltimore, Louisville, St. Louis, 
Kansas City and interior towns in Missouri and in Texas. Among the 
French, in Louisiana and Missouri; and among the Mexicans, in Texas 
and New Mexico. 

Its work in Cuba comprises twenty-four missionaries and has 2,698 
church members. 

Its work among the negroes is in Maryland, Georgia, Alabama, Flor- 
ida, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Texas. 

It has important missions in Baltimore, Washington, New Orleans, 
Nashville and Memphis. 

Its work in the mountain region is in Georgia, Tennessee, North Car- 
olina, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia. 

Yet no one of its fields is fully occupied, and its destitution is not half 
supplied. 

WHAT THE AVERAGE MISSIONARY OF THE HOME BOARD DOES. 
(Compiled from official reports on file.) 

He preaches to five congregations, and averages two sermons per week 
every year. 



28 MINUTES OF THE 

He attends forty prayer meetings, baptizes seventeen believers, and 
receives fifteen by letter. 

He organizes one Sunday School, and every third year he organizes 
two, into which he gathers the first year, forty pupils and teachers. 

He makes 160 religious visits, constitutes one church every two years, 
and builds a house of worship every three years, which cost, with the 
lot, $900. 

He gives away six Bibles and Testaments, and 3,000 tracts. 

He costs the denomination #300 per annum. 

The house of worship he builds every third j'ear adds to the wealth of 
the denomination a sum equal to his entire support. 



The work of the Board in Cuba has been somewhat retarded by the 
war in that Island. 

We are glad to say that there has been no interference by the gov- 
ernment with our missionaries or our mission work. 

The management of our work there by our Brother Diaz, in the dif- 
ficult and trying circumstances in which he has been placed, is worthy 
of all praise. He has organized and sent to the field seven Societies of 
the Red Cross, whose work has been highly commended by both con- 
tending parties. 

Should the present efforts result in the freedom of Cuba from Spanish 
rule, there would be thrown open to Southern Baptists the grandest op- 
portunity and the greatest responsibility that has ever occurred in our 
history. 

WORK AMONG THE NEGROES. 

It is proposed that four bodies, the Home Mission Society of New 
York, the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, the 
Baptist Convention of North Carolina, and the negro Baptist Conven- 
tion shall unite in the work of the evangelization of the colored people 
in North Carolina. 

This work has progressed, so far as the employment of a general mis- 
sionary for the State, with three district missionaries in different parts 
of the State, who are already in the field. 

It is expected that the expenses of this work for the first year will be 
borne equally by these four bodies, and afterwards that the proportion 
of the negro Convention shall be increased gradually until they will 
bear the greater part of the burden. 

The same plan of co-operation it is proposed to establish in all the 
States of the South. It is already adopted in Alabama, and arrange- 
ments are in progress to put it into operation in Louisiana and Ken- 
tucky. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION, 29 

The Home Mission Boards in New York and Atlanta hope to be able 
to report next May that this plan is in successful prosecution in four of 
our States. 

DESTITUTION. 

One of the gravest difficulties in the way of our work is that people 
do not reaiize the great needs of our field. It requires no argument, or 
even thought, to convince any one interested in missions that there is 
destitution in China, India, or Africa. But they are so accustomed to 
the enjoyment of religious privileges themselves, that they cannot real- 
ize that in this favored land there are any communities which are with- 
out such privileges. It requires facts, argument, reflection, to produce 
the conviction that there is destitution in America, as well as in foreign 
fields. 

It is a startling thought that, as all are born without knowledge of the 
truth, if evangelistic efforts should cease America would become as much 
a Pagan country as China within a single generation. It is another 
startling fact that, notwithstanding all that has been done by our 
churches and Mission Boards in the last fifty years, and the great suc- 
cess that has attended their efforts, though Baptists have increased from 
450,000 to 2,600,000 in this Southern land, there are more unregenerate 
persons within the limits of this Convention than there were fifty years 
ago. 

It is estimated that one-half the population of the South, say 10,000,- 
000, are under Baptist influence ; deducting one-fourth of this number as 
below the age of accountability, and the 2,600,000 church members, 
leaves about 5,000,000 of unregenerate persons under the influence of our 
Baptist churches. These we must give the gospel, or they will probably 
never receive it. 

With the view of ascertaining some just idea of the destitution of our 
Southern land, the Board addressed three questions to the Correspond- 
ing Secretaries of our State Boards as follows: 

1. How many men would be required to supply the religious destitu- 
tion of your State ? 

2. What amount would be required to support them? 

3. What amount would be needed to supply them with houses of wor- 
ship and other necessary equipment? 

Answers were received from eight States — Kentucky, Mississippi, 
Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Louisiana, Tennessee and Texas — 
showing that for these States alone there would be required 1,392 mission- 
sionaries, 1480,000 to support them, besides what their fields of labor 
would supply, and about an equal amount for church building, annually 
for the next ten years. This means that, including the remaining States 
within the Convention, there would be required to supply our religious 
destitution 2,000 missionaries, an annual expenditure of not less than 



30 MINUTES OF THE 

|500,ooo to support them, and afford them houses of worship and other 
facilities requisite for the work. 

These facts force upon us the conclusion that, great as has been onr 
success, the work of our Baptist churches has been only half accom- 
plished, and in view of the rapid increase of our population in the near 
future, it becomes us to redouble our diligence, and let the dawning of 
the coming century see a thousand missionaries working under our 
Board, State and Home, gathering from this whitening harvest sheaves 
for the garner of our Lord. 

WHAT THE HOME MISSION BOARD ASKS. 

The Home Mission Board asks for its work this year One Hundred 
Thousand Dollars, and it has apportioned that amount among the States. 
The Board, in connection with the State Secretaries and Boards, will 
endeavor to secure this sum by ever}' proper means. We are assured that 
this amount is far less than the ability of our people would warrant us 
in asking, and much short of the actual needs of our work. 

The entire amount, however, judiciously dispensed, would not enabie 
us to supply the three thousand Baptist homeless churches and houses 
of worship. It would not enable us fully to supplement the work that 
ought to be done in our great cities. It would not, if Cuba should 
obtain her independence, supply the imperious needs of that island for 
the gospel. 

Three times the amount we ask would not fill the measure of the wants 
of the twenty-five millions of people living to-day on the field of the 
Home Mission Board! 

And what is $100,000 to a million and a half Baptists? How easily 
could it be raised if our people have a mind to work for the Lord. May 
the Holy Spirit incline every heart to zealous effort for the Master's 
cause, both at home and abroad! 

Of this $ 100,000 the Board asks of North Carolina but $6,000. We are 
a hundred and fifty thousand strong, and the Home Mission Board has, 
in all the past years of its history, been very generous to North Carolina. 

Besides what has been done in many of our rural districts, the Board 
has aided our churches in Raleigh, Edenton, Newbern, Goldsboro, Char- 
lotte, Greensboro, Salisbury, Asheville, Chapel Hill, Warrenton, Hen- 
dersouville, Waynesville, Murphy, Bryson City, Washington, Tarboro, 
Newton, Concord, Elizabeth City, and other important places. Surely 
our Baptist people will rally warmly to the support of this Board, that 
has done such noble work for North Carolina. Let the $6,000 asked be 
given with ready and willing hands.

SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

The following circular letter was sent out by Bro. Durham in the early- 
part of the present year, before the sessions of the Associations were 
held: 

" IMPORTANT SUNDAY SCHOOI, STATISTICS. 

"The improvement in Sunday School statistical information, published 
in the minutes of our Baptist Associations, has been very great during 
the past five years. This improvement will doubtless be continued till, 
in a few years, these tables will be as complete and as reliable as the 
tables giving the membership of our churches. It has taken five years 
in time, and much hard work with patience, to get the church clerks to 
furnish the information needed in the church letters to the Associations 
and to get the clerks of the Associations to appreciate, tabulate and 
print in the minutes this much sought and much needed information. 

" For the present, however, study the table given below. It will show, 
in what Associations the defects are greatest. I know of no way to 
remedy these, except through the clerks of the churches in making up 
their annual church letters to the Associations, and through the clerks 
of the Associations in publishing their minutes. 

" Let every one interested in Sunday School work do what he can to 
have all the facts about his own school put into his church letter to the 
next Association. 

" In order to secure before the Associations this year the best report 
possible on Sunday Schools, and the most helpful discussion of this 
work, and to make sure of the publication in the next Associational 
minutes of the fullest possible Sunday School statistical information, we 
ask the brethren — one in each Association named below — to specially 
aid us in this work, viz. :

dwellings and under bush arbors, more Sunday Schools than churches.

,' There is no department of our work where greater developments are 
being realized, or greater progress being made. Correct statistical re- 
ports would abundantly establish these facts. C. DURHAM." 

It was the earnest desire of Bro. Durham to stimulate the Sunday 
School work and to gather Sunday School statistics. Hence the prepa- 
ration of the circular letter. He expected good results along the line 
of his intention in the preparation of the letter. 

The Convention at Charlotte, in 1894, passed the following resolution: 

"Resolved, That the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools be instruc- 
ted to appoint a Sunday School Missionary or Missionaries to labor in 
the bounds of the North Carolina Baptist State Convention." 

At the meeting of the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools, on 
February 26, 1895, in obedience to the instruction of the Convention in 
the above resolution, Brethren C. Durham, A. M. Simms and O. L. String- 
field were appointed a committee to consider and report a plan for the 
work contemplated by the Convention's resolution. 

This Committee reported on April 2 the following plan, which was 
adopted by the Board: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE. 

Your Committee, appointed at the last meeting of the Board, to report 
a plan of work for the Sunday School Missionary or Missionaries, pro- 
vided for by a resolution of the Baptist State Convention of 1894, page 
57 of the Minutes, beg to submit the following report: 

FIELDS. 

1. The Convention to be divided into two sections — Eastern and 
Western. 

2. The Eastern section to include the Pee Dee, the Montgomery, the 
Sandy Creek, the Piedmont and Beulah Associations, and all of the 
Associations east of them. 

3. The Western Section to include the Union, Stanly, Liberty and 
Pilot Mountain Associations, and all of the Associations in the Conven- 
tion west of them. 

SCOPE OF THE WORK AND DUTIES OF MISSIONARIES, 
i. To gather and tabulate, by Associations, the Sunday School statis- 
tics within the Convention. 

2. To secure in each and every Baptist Sunday School, and in each 
and every Union Meeting, and in each and every Association, some suit- 
able brother to cooperate with the Missionary, and to represent the 
general work in his school, or in his Union Meeting, or in his Associa- 
tion. 

3. To secure the organization of new schools in churches where there 
are no schools, and at school-houses and control points in the destitute 
territory where schools ought to exist. 

4 



34 MINUTES OF THE 

4. To encourage the use of the best Sunday School and mission litera- 
ture, the purchase and distribution of the Scriptures, the purchase and use 
of suitable Sunday School libraries and song books, and in those things, 
so far as practicable, and to the best interest of the Convention work, to 
co-operate with its Supply Store. 

5. To encourage the liberal support of the general Sunday School 
work of the Convention, and to secure, so far as possible, regular and 
special contributions for it. 

6. To impart needed information about the Sunday School work in 
the Convention, and to make full quarterly reports to the Board of Mis. 
sious and Sunday Schools of the work done, progress made, expenses 
i'ncurred and collections secured. 

7. To forward, at least monthly, to the Treasurer of tbe Convention, 

all collections made, or proper vouchers therefor to the Board of the 

Convention. 

C. Durham, 

A. M. SIMMS, 

O. L. Stringfield, 
April 2, 1895. Committee. 

The Secretary was ordered by the Board to secure the services of a 
brother to accept this work under the plans reported by the Committee 
and adopted by the Board. He corresponded with several brethren. No 
one was secured. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL SUPPLY STORE. 

The following circular letter was prepared and sent out during the 
early part of the year in the interest of the Supply Store and to increase 
the volume of its business. The circular has proved effectual in awak- 
ening a wider interest among our people in the Store: 



" Dear Brother : 

" We are desirous to increase the volume of business and usefulness 
of our 'Sunday School Supply Store,' and with this end in view solicit 
your co-operation in aiding us to secure all the patronage possible on 
your field. 

" Will you not call the attention of your people to the fact of the exist- 
ence of the ' Sunday School Supply Store ' and explain to them that 
it is the property of the Baptists of North Carolina, and that in purchas- 
ing from or through this Store we are giving all the profits on our pur- 
chases to enable the denomination to conduct a larger and more success- 
ful work in the destitute fields in our State? There cannot be any loss 
to oar people in sending their orders to their own store, as we supply all 
goods at publishers' prices. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 35 

" Some of our people seem to think that we fill orders only for Sunday 
School literature and the publications of the Baptist Sunday School 
Board, but this is a very sad mistake, since we fill orders for the publi- 
cations of the Baptist Sunday School Board, American Baptist Publica- 
tion Society, or the National Baptist Publication Society, and any and all 
other Baptist literature, and Sunday School and Church supplies which 
may be required in our Churches or Sunday Schools, or by individual 
brethren. 

" Some of our people send orders to outside stores (and they have a 
legal right to do this), but the profits on every such order is just so much

The Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, Nash- 
ville, Tenn, from the profits on its business, sent a check for $150 to aid 
the Sunday School Mission work in this State. 

The Board of Missions and Sunday Schools has, in the spirit of the 
Constitution of the Convention, endeavored to cooperate -with the Sun- 
day School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention in its work. We 
cooperate with that Board in its work of furnishing Sunday School lit- 
erature to such of our Sunday Schools as wish to use the literature of 
the Board. The arrangement has been of profit to the Sunday School 
Supply Store, and of benefit and convenience to the large number of 
of our Sunday Schools, using the Sunday School literature of the South- 
ern Baptist Convention. We are grateful to the Sunday School Board 
of the Southern Baptist Convention for its timely aid and sympathy in 
our work. 

The American Baptist Publication Society has given, recently, 500 
Bibles and 1000 Testaments to be distributed to the indigent and desti- 
tute. We are grateful to the Society for this timely aid, and for its kind- 
ness and help to us in our work. 

For full and more complete reports of the finances of the Sunday 
School Supply Store, as well as of the mission funds for the mission 
work of the Convention, we refer to the report of the Treasurer of the 
Convention. 

We are grateful to God for the success of the work of the past year, 
and in the hope that the Lord will guide the Convention in its plans for 
the incoming year, we submit this report of the work for the year just 
closed. JOHN C. SCARBOROUGH,

J. W. Carter, Chairman of the Committee, submitted the 
following report: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BAPTIST FEMALE UNIVERSITY 

At no time during the history of this child of the Convention have we 
found greater pleasure in making this, our annual report. Since our 
last report the contract for the first building has been awarded to the 
North Carolina Car Company, at a cost of thirty-eight thousand ($38,000, 
dollars. The walls of this building are between the first and second 
stories, and the work is now going on. The first payment of six thousand 
dollars has been made to the contractor, and a few hundred dollars in 
hand with which to aid in making the second payment. The Trustees 
having passed a resolution not to endanger the property with a debt, the 
work can go on only as our people furnish the money with which to 
pay the contractor. We have notes and subscriptions to the amount of 
about fifteen thousand dollars, and are putting forth every possible 
effort to secure an amount sufficient to erect ample buildings, first of 
all, for the accommodation of the very large patronage that is already 
assured the school. 

We cannot hope that this great work can be done without a struggle, 
but with a long, hard pull, and a pull altogether, we confidently believe 
the Lord will give to us a school offering the largest opportunities for 
the girls of North Carolina. We ask that this Convention give the Trus- 
tees that encouragement which this struggling child so much needs 
and so richly deserves. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 49 

We most heartily urge the importance of pushing this work to com- 
pletion as rapidly as possible, on account of the large number of young 
women who are anxious to enter next September. To this end we ask 
that our pastors and people take this great work on their hearts, and 
make every possible sacrifice for its early establishment. 

It is with pleasure we note the hearty co-operation brethren String- 
field and Edwards have found wherever they have discussed the great 
work. Respectfully submitted, J. W. CARTER, 

T. HUME,

Committee. 

The Convention was addressed by J. W. Carter, O. Iy. 
Stringfield and J. H. Edwards, after which a subscription 
of $1,250 was taken, and the report was adopted. 

J. V. McDuffie read the Report of the Minister's Relief 
Board : 

REPORT OF CORRESPONDING SECRETARY OF MINISTERS' 
RELIEF BOARD. 

To live in poverty, and yet to live honorably and above reproach, 
when one has commanded the seeming confidence and respect of his fel- 
low-men, and then to be turned down amid despondency and gloom, 
and left on the cold charities of the world, often neglected and some- 
times forgotten by those whom he loves, is enough to make any one feel 
dejected, especially amid afflictions and old age. This, no doubt, is the 
condition of some of our beneficiaries. 

Most of them have labored arduously, earnestly and continuously in 
this work of love which we all love. They loved all, prayed for all, 
gave to all, andspent all, and now appeal to us all, for a little of our all 
to help them spend the last few days of their lives creditably and com- 
fortably. Shall we divide with them ? 

The present condition of the Board indicates progress. The general 
contributions for this year have been more than any previous year, while 
special contributions have been less. The interest taken by some of the 
Associations has been very gratifying, while others seem not to have 
taken hold of it as yet. Of the forty-five Associations in the State, only 
twenty have representatives of the Board. Of this number only eight 
seem to be taking very much interest in the work of the Board. We 
have written to all these representatives, but they have not, as yet, re- 
sponded. Nearly all those who have responded seem to be very much

encouraged with the outlook. The most praiseworthy of any of the As- 
sociations is the Mount Zion. Last year this Association only contributed 
sixty-six dollars and ninety-seven cents, but the brethren pledged one 
hundred and twenty-two dollars and eighty-eight cents for next year at 
its last session. 

We have now on the Board the following: Brethren J. G. Barkley, of 
Rocky Mount; W. J. Combs, of Trap Hill; William Harris, of Kapp's 
Mills; Jesse Howell, of New Hill; John Hughes, of Byrd; R. W. Wooteu, 
of Roda. Sisters C. F. Humphries, of Oxford; B. H. Phillips, of Reids- 
ville; J. Barlow, of Sloop Point, andH. Spivy, of Clinton. Bro. T. Har- 
rison, of Rockingham, was released from his afflictions and taken to his 
reward during this year. Bro. J. M. Register, of Register, only remained 
on the Board from February to August, and he passed way. Each of 
these brethren were great sufferers, but death released them and God 
took them home. We have received three beneficiaries on the Board 
this year: Bro. J. M. Register, Sister Harriet Spivy and Bro. R. W. 
Wooten. We have eleven now on the Board, and two applicants for 
consideration. 

What we need most now, is to realize the possibilities lying before us. 
If Virginia can raise twenty-nine hundred and eighty-three dollars and 
forty cents for her fifty-two Beneficiaries, surely, North Carolina ought 
to be able to carry at least twenty-five Beneficiaries and raise half the 
amount of her sister State. 

Brethren, let us rally to the help of these old Veterans of the Cross, 

and help them more, and help more of them for their work's sake. 

They have faithfully served us and need to be served faithfully by us.

52 MINUTES OF THE 



SATURDAY MORNING. 

December 7, 1895. 

Devotional exercises conducted by A. C. Cree. 

The convention was called to order at 9:30 A. m. by Presi- 
dent Marsh. 

On motion, the Trustees of the Convention were author- 
ized to make deed of church property at Walnut Cove to 
the Trustees of the Baptist Church at that place. 

A. M. Simms, for the committee appointed at last session 
to submit such changes in the Constitution as might be nec- 
essary for the purpose of creating a separate Sunday School 
Board, reported as follows: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CONSTITUTION REVISION. 

Your Committee, appointed last year to report such revision in the 
constitution as was necessary to the appointment of a separate Sunday 
School Board, begs leave to report: 

We recommend that the words " and Sunday School " be stricken out 
of Article 10, line 2, and out of Article 12, lines 1 and 13; and that in 
Article 12, line 8, strikeout all following the word "literature," down to 
the word "co-operate" in line 12. Also, that the following article be 
added to the constitution: 

13. The Sunday School Board shall have charge of the Sunday School 
work of this Convention, including the management of the Sunday 
School Supply Store, and shall have power to employ such means as they 
may deem best for the prosecution of the work.

Pending the reading of the minority report, the hour 
for the special order arrived, and Prof. J. B. Carlyle read 
the report of the Trustees of Wake Forest College, as fol-

BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 53 

REPORT ON WAKE FOREST COLLEGE. 

Since the last meeting of the Convention, four Trustees have died. 
These were C. T. Bailey, W. G. Upchurch, C. Durham and G. W. Blount. 
They all loved the College, and served it well. 

At the annual meeting of the Board in June existing vacancies were 
filled by the election of N. B. Broughton, J. B. Boone and W. C. Dowd. 

The number of students enrolled during the whole of the last session was 
221. The registration for the present session, up to date, is 243. Of 
these 64 are preparing to preach the Gospel. There is reason to hope that 
others will enter the College within the next sixty days. 

At no time in the history of the College has the health of the faculty 
and student body been better than during the last twelve months. 

All the Chairs in the institution are now filled, and regular work is 
carried on in every department. At the annual meeting of the Trustees, 
in June, J. H. Gorrell, Ph. D., was made full professor and placed in 
charge of the School of Modern Languages. N. Y. Gulley, M. A., was 
made full professor and placed in charge of the Schools of Law and Po- 
litical Science. R. W. Haywood, M. A., was made assistant professor, 
and work in the Schools of Latin and Greek assigned him. 

The success of the School of Law has been very marked, and has even 
exceeded the expectations of its most sanguine friends. And there is 
good reason to believe that this is but the earnest of larger things in the 
near future. 

The great majority of the students are working with assiduity and 
success, and are conducting themselves with perfect decorum. The 
number of those who are neglecting their opportunities, and are dis- 
posed to be mischievous, is small. 

Many of the friends of the College have heartily endorsed the action 
of the faculty in prohibiting all games of foot-ball except on the Ath- 
letic Grounds of the institution. 

In the absence of a regular instructor in Bible studies, Prof. W. L. 
Poteat has done a most valuable and fruitful work in organizing and 
guiding a voluntary movement among the students in this direction. 
Prof. W. B. Royall is expecting to do some special and regular work 
during the Spring Term with the large number of young ministers. 

A careful comparison, recently made, reveals the very gratifying fact 
that a larger proportion of students than for many years past are regu- 
lar attendants on Sunday School instruction. And it may be doubted 
whether there is in any college a more steady glow of missionary zeal 
than is found at Wake Forest. 

The President of the College was at work in the field at large last ses- 
sion. This session he has been almost constantly at the College. Since 
last July all the agency work has devolved upon Rev. C. S. Blanchard, 
who has been seeking to complete the endowment of the Royall Chair. 



54 MINUTES OF THE 

Hopeful progress has been made, but much remains to be accomplished. 
Than the completion of this special endowment, no more important 
work is before the Baptists of North Carolina. If our people only 
knew the difficulties and financial embarrassments under which the Trus- 
tees and Faculty are seeking to do the great work committed to them, 
and if they could realize the opportunities now before the College, they 
would speedily put at the disposal of the Trustees such means that the 
latter would be unhampered in the administration of this great trust.

The report was discussed by W. L. Wright, of Rich- 
mond; J. W. Millard, of Henderson; R. T. Vann, of Scot- 
land Neck; J. B. Carlyle, of Wake Forest. 

The report was adopted. 

A telegram was received from North Carolina students 

at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Ky., 

as follows:

To N. C. Baptist Sate Convention, Greensboro, N. C: 
North Carolina students send greeting. Col. 2:5.

J. W. Millard was, on motion of J. D. Huf ham, appointed 
to answer the telegram. He reported the following answer:

For Baptist State Convention. 

The report on Ministerial Education was read by John 
Mitchell, of Wake Forest, as follows: 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 
The work of the Board, during the past year, has been fairly prosper- 
ous. Number of young ministers aided is 36. The aid given is $9 per 
month, and this is made a loan rather tlian a gift, as it is to be returned 
after five years, without interest. This was adopted as the policy of the 
Board two years ago. We ask that the Convention shall express its de- 
sire as to whether this policy be continued, or whether the Board shall 
return to the old plan of giving aid. 






BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 55 

I regret to have to report that the year closes with a debt of $800. 
Some brethren and churches have not sent in promptly their contribu- 
tions. We hope to pay off this debt soon. It shall be our aim to get 
the Board out of debt, and keep it out of debt, and aid as many young 
ministers, who are worthy and need it, as we possibly can. The Board 
will aid about the same number this year as last. Already 35 have been 
received. There are more than a dozen others who are asking for help, 
and who need it, but the means are not in sight, and the Board cannot 
receive them. Would that we could help all the worthy young minis- 
ters who apply. Brethren, for the Master's sake, let us do it. 

Our Convention was organized for this work: "The primary objects 
of the Convention," says the constitution, "shall be to educate young 
men called of God to the ministry, and approved by the churches to 
which they belong." "The Education Board, shall, so far as it is able, 
assist promising and indigent young ministers seeking to prepare them- 
selves for the more efficient preaching of the Gospel. " The importance 
of this work is growing upon us every year. The number of young 
ministers needing help is increasing with the rapid growth of our de- 
nomination. The Lord is making this work to grow upon us as never 
before. Let us meet the responsibility, and help the Lord's servants for 
the Lord's sake, No work that the Master has given us to do has been 
more signally blest. None has given better results. None is more im- 
portant now. Would that we could help all the Lord's poor ministers, 
struggling to prepare themselves for the great work to which He has 
called them. 

The following is a brief financial statement: 

Received from J. D. Boushall, Treasurer during the year $2, 883. 51

The itemized account has been audited and certified as follows:

Corresponding Secretary of the Board of Education of the N. C. Baptist 
State Convention, and find it correct, and properly vouched, with a bal- 
ance of $47.05 due Treasurer. J. M. Brewer, Auditor. 

There are also 12 young ministers at the Seminary at Louisville, from 
our State, and our brethren contribute to their support. And others are 
aided at our Academies and High Schools. Bro. Beam, at Bethel Hill, 
is supporting Bro. Edwards from the West Chowan Association, and has 
been for the past session. In this way he has been aiding liberally for 
several years. Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN MITCHELL, Corresponding Secretary. 



56 MINUTES OF THE 

The report was discussed by John Mitchell, of Wake 
Forest; E. C. Dargan, of Southern Baptist Theological Sem- 
inary, and pledges and cash, amounting to over $500, secured 
for the students' fund. 

M. A. Adams read the report on Baptist Orphanage, as 
follows: 

REPORT ON BAPTIST ORPHANAGE. 

Perhaps no phase of our conventional work lies so near the hearts of 
our people as the Baptist Orphanage, located at Thomasville, under the 
management of Bro. J. B. Boone. There are now 126 children in the in- 
stitution to be fed, clothed and instructed. Their presence there appeals 
tenderly and persistently to our Christian liberality. "Pure religion 
and undefiled before God and the Father, is this, to visit the fatherless 
and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the 
world." 

We do most earnestly recommend that our Sunday Schools take 
monthly collections, and that all our pastors give their churches an op- 
portunity to aid in the support of this noble institution. That our peo- 
ple may be better informed and become more deeply interested in this 
work, we do hereby most heartily commend Charity and Children, un- 
der the editorial control of Bro. A. Johnson.

by M. L. Kesler, of Red Springs. 

Proceedings of yesterday were read and approved. 

The committee appointed to nominate a Corresponding 
Secretary reported through their chairman, C. E. Taylor, 
who recommended John E. White, of Edenton. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION, 57 

On motion, John E. White was elected Corresponding 
Secretary of the Convention by acclamation, unanimously. 

J. H. Tucker, President of the Western North Carolina 
Baptist Convention, was invited to a seat, and to address 
the Convention. He extended fraternal greetings and sym- 
pathy from the brethren of Western North Carolina. 

C.J. Hunter presented the report of the Committee on 
Sunday Schools and Colportage: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS AND COL- 
PORTAGE AND BIBLE WORK. 

Your committee appointed to consider the subject of Sunday Schools 
and Colportage and Bible Work, beg leave to report that they have consid- 
ered the ver3 r important subjects committed to them, and recommend to 
the Convention: 

First. That a committee of fifteen, members of the Board of Missions, 
and Sunday Schools, be and are hereby appointed, to whom shall be en- 
trusted the Sunday School and Colportage Work conducted by the Con- 
vention, the committee to be selected by the Convention annually. 

Second. That it shall be the duty of this committee to manage the 
Sunday School Supply Store, now conducted by the Board of Missions 
and Sunday Schools at Raleigh, and to them shall also be committed 
the appointment of a Sunday School Secretary, or Secretaries, to prose- 
cute the Sunday School work in the bounds of the Convention; and we 
recommend that our Sunday Schools be urged to purchase their supplies 
from our Supply Store. 

Third. That the committee is also requested to provide for establish- 
ing Sunday Schools, and increasing the efficiency of existing Sunday 
Schools, for holding Sunday School Institutes in the different Associa- 
tions of the Convention, and to organize the Baptist Sunday School 
workers of the State. 

Fourth. The committee is directed to report to the Board of Missions 
and Sunday Schools, and through them to the Baptist State Convention 
annually. S. P. SMITH,

58 MINUTES OF THE 

The report was discussed by J. D. Hufham and C. J. 
Hunter, and the Convention was then addressed, by request, 
by C. C. Bitting, Missionary and Bible Secretary of the 
American Baptist Publication Society, who was followed 
by T. H. Pritchard, J. D. Hufham and A. M. Simms. 

On motion of T. H. Pritchard, the report of the commit- 
tee, with the reports submitted by the Committee on Re- 
vision of the Constitution, presented this morning, was re- 
committed to the two committees for consideration. 

The Committee appointed to ascertain the amount paid 
out by Bro. C. Durham for the publication of the pamph- 
let on "How far the State Should Undertake to Educate," 
reported as follows: 

Your Committee, appointed to find out and report upon the amount 
spent by Bro. Durham in publishing and distributing the pamphlet, 
" How Far Should a State Undertake to Educate," beg leave to report 
as follows: 
Bro. Durham surrendered a life policy of insurance, face value --$540.00, 

Surrender value $ 177 12 

He spent in postage 66 50 

Printing memorial to Legislature 1 50 

Interest for six months, at 6 per cent 27 36 

Amount actually expended $ 272 48 

This was the amount actually expended. But it seems right to your 
Committee to emphasize the fact that this insurance policy was surren- 
dered during the past summer, and, being a paid up policy, would have 
been worth the full amount to his bereaved family, viz., $540. If this 
amount is returned, it will change the total to $635.36. 
The matter is worth the attention of the Convention. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. W. MILLARD, 
L. R. PRUETT, 
B. W. SPILLMAN, 
Committee. 

The report was received and a collection, amounting in 
cash and pledges to about $500 was taken up. 

The Committee on Time and Place reported as follows: 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 59 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON TIME AND PLACE. 

The Committee on Time and Place recommend that the next session 
of this Convention be held in the Baptist Church in Morganton, N. C. 
And that the time be changed from Thursday after the first Sunday in 
December to 2:30 p. M. on Wednesday, after the second Sunday in No- 
vember. 

To preach the Conventional Sermon: Dr. J. B. Richardson, of High 
Point, N. C. Alternate: Rev. J. H. Lamberth, of Mt. Airy, N. C. 

J. C. CADDEDL, 
For Committee. 

The report was amended so as to make the time Wednes- 
day after second Sunday in November, at 3:30 p. M., and 
adopted. 

On motion of T. J. Taylor, the consideration of report 
on Periodicals and Biblical Recorder was postponed until 
Monday morning, and the reports on Sunday Schools, 
recommitted to Committee, made special order for to-night 
after the discussion on the Theological Seminary. 

Convention adjourned with benediction. 

Night Session. 

Convention met at 7:30 p. m. 

Devotional exercises were conducted by C. M. Billings, 
pastor of Greenville Church, who read 1st Psalm. Prayer 
by W. C. Tyree, of Durham, and L. R. Pruett, of Char- 
lotte. 

R. VanDeventer, Vice-President of Foreign Mission Board 
of Southern Baptist Convention, was called to the Chair. 

The report on Foreign Missions was read by J. H. Ed- 
wards, as follows: 

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

Foreign missions press their claims upon us because the Master said, 
"Go ye into all the world," and He is now greatly cheering us in our 
toil. In Brazil, Mexico, Japan and China the outlook is unusually en- 



60 MINUTES OF THE 

couraging for our work. The great need, of course, is for more men, 
especially in China. 

As to Brazil, a wave of evangelical life and power is sweeping all over 
the land. God's time to visit this people, with the Spirit's power, must 
be our time, with glad hearts, to send them the Gospel. 

The conditions in China, created by the late war with Japan, are pecu- 
liarly favorable to Christianity. 

Our Foreign Mission Board is anxious to send out new men, and the 
work is at a standstill for want of means to do so. The Southern Bap- 
tist Convention has now upon its fields in Africa, Brazil, China, Italy, 
Japan and Mexico — Missionaries, male, 40; female, 52; ordained natives, 
30 ; unordained native helpers, 59 ; total number of churches, 85 ; out 
stations, 114 ; baptisms the past year, 581 ; total membership, 3,493. We 
observe that about one-sixth of the present membership were baptized 
during the past year. What hath God wrought ! Surely we should be 
stirred to more earnest prayer; to more hearty and liberal giving in our 
Master's name to the foreign mission work ! 

We refer you, for full and accurate details, to the admirable table of 
statistics in the report of the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools of 
this Convention. 

We commend the consolidated Missio?i Journal as an invaluable 
source of information about the whole mission work of the Southern 
Baptist Convention ; price 50 cents per year; one copy free for ten sub- 
scribers. We should urge our people to take it. 

We recommend that untiring efforts be made to raise this year $9,000, 
the amount apportioned to and asked from our State for the work.

The Convention was then addressed by E. Y. Mullens, 
Assistant Corresponding Secretary of Foreign Mission 
Board at Richmond, and T. C. Britton, returned mission- 
ary to China, after which the report was adopted. 

E. C. Dargan, Professor in Southern Baptist Theological 
Seminary, Louisville, Ky. , addressed the Convention on the 
work and aims of the Seminary. A collection for the Min- 
isters' Fund at the Seminary was made, amounting, in 
pledges, to $500, besides a liberal cash collection.

C. J. Hunter read report of Convention on Sunday 
Schools and Colportage Work as follows : 

JOINT REPORT OF COMMITTEES ON SUNDAY SCHOOL AND 
COLPORTAGE WORK. 
The Committees on Sunday Schools, Colportage and Bible Work; and 
on the necessary changes in the Constitution of the Convention so as to 
permit a separate Board for Sunday School and Colportage work, to 
whom the various reports of these committees were re-committed for 
the purpose of agreeing on one report, to be made this evening, beg 
leave to submit the following report : 

First. That a committee of fifteen members of the Board of Missions 
and Sunday Schools be and are hereby appointed, to whom shall be en- 
trusted the Sunday School and Colportage work conducted by the Con- 
vention, the committee to be selected by the Convention annually. 

Second. That it shall be the duty of the committee to manage the 
Sunday School Supply Store, now conducted by the Board of Missions 
and Sunday Schools at Raleigh, and to them shall also be committed the 
appointment of a Sunday School Secretary, or Secretaries, to prosecute 
the Sunday School work within the bounds of the Convention. And 
we recommend that our Sunday Schools be urged to purchase their sup- 
plies from our Supply Store. 

Third. That the committee is also requested to provide for establish- 
ing Sunday Schools and increasing the efficiency of existing Sunday 
Schools, for holding Sunday School Institutes in the different Associa- 
tions of the Convention, and to organize the Baptist Sunday School 
workers of the State. 

Fourth. The committee is directed to report to the Board of Missions 
and Sunday Schools, and through them to the Baptist State Convention 
annually. [Signed] S. F. CONRAD,

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON OBITUARIES. 

During the year which is now closing, more of our fellow-soldiers 
than usual have fallen on the field of honor. Their noble deeds are 
worthy of immortal record. Their sweet and saintly lives deserve to be 
held in everlasting remembrance. But time and space forbid more than 
brief and loving mention, while we drop a tear in memory of them and 
pass on to the fields of strife and of glory. 

George W. Blount, of Wilson: Scholar, lawyer, deacon, Sunday 
School Superintendent, Trustee of Wake Forest College, of blameless 
life and gentle spirit, passed two weeks ago from his home in Wilson 
into the " House not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." 

G. W. Hill, of Columbus county, for forty-six years a preacher of the 
gospel, was taken from the storm and strife at the opening of the new 
year. 

T. Harrison — scholar, preacher, faithful man of God — closed a life of 
fifty-six years, many of them filled with suffering, on the 6th of July; 
going from suffering here into the eternal glory. 

Brethren S. W. Eaton, Jordan Tysor, F. B. Parks, Ezra Tatum, W. G. 
Ferrebee, S. N. Buxton, W. G. Upchurch, J. T. Waff, and W. H. Man- 
ning, having served their generation faithfully by the Will of God, have 
fallen asleep. 

John Lemuel Carroll, bishop of the flock at Chapel Hill, on the 26th 
of June obeyed the call, "Come up higher," aud joined the general as- 
sembly and church of the first-born, whose names are written in heaven. 
A graduate of the University, he was an able minister of the new Testa- 
ment, an accomplished scholar, and a successful man of affairs. Two 
monuments of him remain: The Oxford Orphan Asylum, which, as St. 
John's College, he relieved of a crushing debt, thereby making the 
Asylum possible; and the French Broad Church, Asheville, which was 
builded through his wisdom and energy. 

Christopher Thomas Bailey was born in 1S35, died June 5th, 1895. 
Preacher, teacher aud pastor — he filled a large measure of usefulness. 
But it was as Editor of the RECORDER, 1875 to 1895, that he did his best 
work and made his way into the admiration and love of his brethren.

write the history of North Carolina Baptists without telling the fasci- 
nating story of his extraordinary career. No other man among us has 
ever touched the denominational life so effectively, or at so many vital 
points. No other man has been so widely or deeply lamented by his

66 MINUTES OF THE 

REPORT ON EDITOR OF RECORDER. 

During the last session of your body Dr. C. T. Bailey, editor of the 
Biblical Recorder, expressed to you his apprehension of speedy disease, 
and requested that a committee be appointed to make arrangements to 
continue the publication of the paper on conditions which would be 
satisfactory to the denomination after his death. The undersigned were 
appointed, and on the death of Dr. Bailey, after conferring with the 
family, decided that it would be best that the publication of the paper 
go on under the ownership of the family and under the sole editorial 
management of Bro. J. W. Bailey, son of our deceased brother, who had 
for two years been practically the editor-in-chief. 

We are gratified to believe that the Recorder has not, at any time in 
its history, been more ably and more satisfactorily edited than at the 
present time. It is eminently worth)' of the hearty support of all our 
people. Its sphere of usefulness will be enlarged in proportion as we 
give to it our hearty co-operation.

The report on Periodicals was submitted by J. H. Lam- 
berth, as follows: 

REPORT ON PERIODICALS. 

In this eventful period, when the various denominations are trying to 
excel in religious literature, it is with a degree of pride and pleasure 
that we can present and recommend, to our host of Baptist people, and 
others, who wish to be informed about us, as the largest denomination 
in North Carolina, such periodicals as the Biblical Recorder, through 
which we speak our sentiments, preach our doctrines, and report our 
work. This paper, with an illustrious history back of it, a competent 
man at its head, representing the various interests of a great people, 
should be widely read and heartily supported by the thousands whom it 
represents. 

The North Carolina Baptist, a younger religious paper, is in the field 
helping on the Master's work.

Charity and Children, through which our Orphanage speaks weekly 
to the God-favored homes of our State, is warmly recommended. 

The Wake Forest Student, for the development of young talent, and 
a medium by which the Institution, at which it is edited, may be better 
known, is worthy of our attention. 

And for broader information about our home and foreign work, the 
two combined journals, now known as the Mission Journal of our two 
boards, must be read if we keep posted on the needs and progress of the 
mission fields. 

Praying that the Holy Spirit may guide in publishing, reading, and 
making each of the above mentioned periodicals mighty agents for the 
spreading of truth, information, and the Master's kingdom, we are 
Respectfully yours,

REPORT ON YOUNG PEOPLE'S WORK. 

A program was prepared, and a Young People's Convention has been 
held, as the last State Convention instructed. 

There has been a marked change in the sentiment of many who, a 
year ago, were either opposed or indifferent to the movement. To-day 
they are its friends and advocates.

People's Union, Auxiliary to the Baptist State Convention of North Caro- 
lina lias been effected. Officers have beeu elected.

Remarks were made by J. D. Huf ham, R. VanDeven- 
ter, T. Hume, T. H. Pritchard, and the report was adopted. 

J. D. Huf ham introduced the following resolution, which 
was carried: 

Resolved, That the President and Executive Committee of the Young 
People's Union be requested to consider the wisdom of being organi- 
cally connected with this Convention, and of carrying on their work 
through a Board to be appointed annually by this body. 

J. W. Carter submitted the following as the report of the 
committee appointed at Elizabeth City to memorialize the 
Legislature on the friction between the University and de- 
nominational colleges: 

A MEMORIAL AND PETITION. 

To the General Assembly of North Carolina : 

A Committee appointed by the Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina, at its sixty-third annual session, to memorialize the General 
Assembly of North Carolina with reference to friction between the State 
and private schools which are engaged in higher, collegiate, and uni- 
versity education, most respectfully submits to your honorable body the 
following Memorial and Petition: 

After several months of serious consideration, the Committee is full}* 
convinced — 

That the roots and ultimate causes of the frictiou which you are asked 
to remove are in the laws of the State; and that nothing less than a 
change in the laws which direct the educational policy of the State will 
relieve the friction: 



70 MINUTES OF THE 

That this relief can be given by action of the General Assembly; for 
the Constitution makes the will of the people, expressed from time to 
time through their Representatives in the General Assembly, the su- 
preme authority of the State for the appropriation of money from the 
Treasury of the State to higher, collegiate, or university education: 

That a large proportion of the voters of the State, including many of 
the best friends of education, without regard to their political affilia- 
tions or religious convictions, believe that the time has come for a cau- 
tious but thorough revision of the laws which shape the educational 
policy of the State: 

That the several Christian colleges and other private and denomina- 
tional schools whose usefulness is imperilled, are entitled to considera- 
tion from your body. They represent, in their equipments, endowments, 
etc., several millions of dollars invested and voluntarily contributed by 
friends of education. They employ as instructors many men and women 
of the best scholarship and the highest character. They have sent forth 
a large proportion of the most successful teachers, preachers, farmers, 
lawyers, doctors, and business men in the State. They have many thou- 
sands of friends who are read)' to make sacrifices to sustain and enlarge 
them. They are exerting such widespread and salutary influences that 
their continued existence and unhampered expansion seem necessary 
for the greatest good of the State: 

That the illiteracy of large numbers of the people of North Carolina 
is a reproach to the State, is unfavorable to its prosperity and is a menace 
to its good government; that this illiteracy can be removed only through 
the agency of the Public Schools; and that these will require all the 
taxes of the people which can be expended for educational purposes: 

That the policy of appropriating the taxes of the people to the sup- 
port of higher education in colleges and universities is not only unjust 
to the public schools, with which these colleges and universities have 
no organic connection, but is actually obstructive to the most natural 
and healthful development of collegiate or university education in the 
State: 

That the continued appropriation to higher education of any part of 
the taxes of the people which might be used in keeping the Public 
Schools open for four months a year, as required by the mandate of the 
Constitution, is unnecessary, and, therefore, unwise and wrong: 

That this appropriation is unnecessary because it is possible for all 
higher collegiate, or university education to be provided for, not from 
the taxes of the people, but by private munificence, through endow- 
ments or otherwise, on the principle of voluntary support: 

That the voluntary system is not only right in itself, but has proved 
its practical efficiency in every State in which it has had a fair trial: 

That some of the same general principles which have demanded the 
separation of Church and State demand also the severance of higher 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 7 1 

education from State support; that no more important service was ever 
rendered by human government to true religion than its severance from 
State support and control, and no more friendly service was ever ren- 
dered to the established churches themselves than the action which 
compelled all the churches in this country, without discrimination, to 
adopt the voluntary system; that, now, no more important or friendly 
service can be rendered to the cause of general education and to the 
several schools now maintained by the State for higher, collegiate or 
university education than the adoption for them by the General Assem- 
bly of the system of voluntary support: 

That nothing short of a practical recognition and actual establishment 
of the principle of voluntary support in the higher education can remove 
the unnecessary, unwise, and hurtful friction, or can relieve the State of 
the widening and deepening discussion of what is believed by many 
thousands of people to be an unjust policy in education on the part of 
the State: 

Now, therefore, we, your Memorialists, beg to submit to your honora- 
ble body that the Christian denomination by whose Convention we are 
charged with this duty has always, in peace and in war, been faithful 
to every interest of the State; that its members are the uncompromising 
friends of civil and religious liberty; and that they are ardent advocates 
of all education, the highest as well as the lowest. 

Representing, as we believe, the views and wishes of the overwhelm- 
ing majority of the members of this body of Christians, we beg you to 
hear and consider our petition: 

1st. While we do not ask for any violent action on your part, we do 
ask that practical recognition shall be given by your body at this ses- 
sion to the voluntary principle in the support and control of all higher 
education in our State. We ask that this principle shall be so fully 
established in the laws of the State as ultimately to put all the institu- 
tions of higher learning on the same plane, so far as the principle of their 
control and support is concerned. We recognize the necessity for a 
period of transition. We believe that this period should be reasonable 
in extent, but definite in limit. 

2d. That all the taxes of the people which are available for educational 
purpose shall be spent in the better schooling of the children of the 
State in Public Schools, and that due encouragement be given to the 
principle of voluntary local taxation for Common School purposes. 

3d. That no exemption from examination for certificates to teach in 
the Public Schools shall be allowed to any person. 

4th. That no institution for higher, collegiate, or university education 
shall be allowed, while aided by appropriations from the Treasury of the 
State, to issue or use scholarships unless these are based upon an actual 
annual money income sufficient to pay the regular charges in full for 
the privileges granted, said income to accrue from sources other than 
the appropriations made, for the time being, by the State. 



72 MINUTES OF THE 

5th. That all institutions chartered by the State for industrial and 
normal education shall confine themselves strictly to that work so long 
as they shall be supported in whole or in part by appropriations from 
the State. 

6th. That no law making an appropriation to any institution shall 
continue in force, without re-enactment, for a longer period than the 
intervals between the meetings of the General Assembly. 

It is believed that, if it were necessary, petitions signed by a majority 
of the voters in every county where this subject has been discussed 
before the people could be presented to you. But we hope that this will 
not be necessary, believing, as we do, that tbe members of your honor- 
able body already understand, to a great extent, at least, the wishes of 
the people of North Carolina as to the educational policy of the State. 
Fully trusting to your capacity and purpose to deal with the very im- 
portant questions which are brought to your attention in this Memorial 
in such a way as to secure the best and largest and most permanent 
results to all classes of the people of the State, we submit our Petition 
to your honorable body. 

And your Memorialists will every pray, etc.
